The refs already damaged the game with their f**kups
You obviously didn't see Bennett try that.
You're better off calling the ref a cheat.
Bennett didn't want to answer anything! That was the merkins problem, all the NRL is asking of them is to be professional and not slate the refs to the media. It isn't fricking hard, or shouldn't be for a mature professional management person.
And it isn't hard, they are being deceitful in their behaviour, knowing exactly what they are doing and doing it for the sole purpose of diverting attention from the failures of themselves or their players. Fck if it damages the game, fck if it turns people off watching, fck if it stops people wanting to be a ref. Its pure selfishness on their part and Id be happy to see harsher penalties.

Ref f**kups turn me off the game more than some coach presser that I'd rarely watch.
Nope the constant whinging by commentators, 16 replays of every decision, coaches whining and media beat up is whats fcking the game up. Refs have always made mistakes, fans have always felt duded. Difference is now its no longer a heated discussion at the bar after the game and move on, its a week long drawn out hyperbole about one or two 50-50 decisions.
Nice whinge about the whinging.
To break the monotony:
How good is it having finals matches during the day rather than night time? Daytime footy rules. They should be playing the next two games at 3pm Sat and Sunday.
Are you telling people how they be mature and accusing them of using diversion to hide their failures?
Sounds exactly like a bloke without a team who bags others teams for not having big enough crowds ey?
The thing is these are all 50-50 calls, that's what makes the whinging so ridiculous. If they were blatantly obvious wrong then fair enough but here we are 4-5 days later and still everybody is debating whether their correct or not. Half is crying bloody murder while the other half is saying the refs were correct. Take the sharks for example, I myself and plenty of others think the sin bin was 100% correct, I also think Paul Gallen was playing for the penalty and just lost the ball cold, and also think Winterstein grounded the ball before the sharks first try. So I think to blame those decisions for costing you your season is ridiculous. They were 50-50 calls that could of went either way, this time they went against your team, get over it
They attracted larger crowds when they played during the day from memory.
Nicer weather, more family friendly, and better footy in sunny dry conditions. You'd think it's a no-brainer.
Unfortunately, the NRL commission do, in fact, have no brains.
It doesn't suit the TV schedule though.
So Wayne Bennent then
In my opinion the NRL have to be good enough to accommodate both. If they can't get someone in charge that can.
Some of them weren't 50/50 though like leutele tackled without the ball it was as plain to see as the nose on pinnochios face
I think it is the height of hypocrisy to criticise ref errors when your team completes at 60 odd percent as a coach. If the Sharks played ok I guess I would have more sympathy. Yes the refs had a bad game too. Mind you the media bait these answers from coaches at times. Do journos have restrictions on ref related questions?
Say what, the team paid the price for their own howlers, they didn't need official assistance to reduce the completion rate on top of it.
The Sharks were a top 2 team on paper and were probably the biggest danger to the Storm but played well below their best most of the year. The ref rampage is a distraction because as you say the Sharks paid the price for the way they played. Anyway I think the Sharks have one more in them provided they can get the best out of Dugan.
